Our Emotional and Spiritual Lives - Book Study and Discussion
Every Monday, from 06/15/2020 to 07/20/2020, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Dr. Marc Brackett writes that most of us “believe that our feelings are important and deserve to be addressed respectfully and fully. But we also think of emotions as being disruptive and unproductive.” And so what do we do with all of the emotions we feel each day? Do we repress, oppress or dismiss them? Do we just “power through” and “get over it?” What are we to do when our emotions overtake us, and we are left in a puddle of tears or red-faced and yelling? Join the conversation as together we learn what to do with emotions, how to hold them and what they teach us.
Over the course of six sessions, we will explore the book, Permission to Feel: Unlocking the Power of Emotions to Help Our Kids, Ourselves, and Our Society Thrive, by Marc Brackett Ph.D. This conversation is open to all people, but perhaps the person who will gain the most out of this work is the person who, like me, thinks they do not need to read a book like this. Led by Pastor Jason Valendy.
